The Crusader

For his foundation was –

Fire in stomach, steel in eyes, ire in heart.

Life seemed so unfair from whence he could remember,

From the very start.

 

For he realized no one can take away –

The sky above and the ground below.

In between whatever remains is for those who claim,

Seize and overthrow.

 

For God, whom he never knew whispered –

A blessing when he started his crusade.

A quest to set things right, to spread courage and light,

Against all odds, he

marched on unswayed.

    marched on unswayed.” We need more crusader to spread the light. Lovely writing, Subhasree. ❤
